About the artist:

Sally Chapman

Sally Chapman is a photographer living in the Boston area. She earned a BFA in ceramics and photography from Michigan State University. For over twenty years she worked as a ceramic artist in Colorado showing extensively in New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming. Moving to California and Massachusetts her attention went to spiritual pursuits seeing that the desire to create art is the same as the desire for spirit.

The magic of capturing images at night inspired her to begin creating artwork again with the camera. Her photographic subjects are often of the urban landscape and neighborhoods. Recently she has been shown in exhibits at the Cambridge Art Association, Plymouth Center for the Arts, Springfield Art Association in Springfield, IL, Griffin Museum, Barrett Art Center, Fort Collins Lincoln Center, and Photographic Resource Center. She is a member of the Boston Camera Club, and Greater Boston Night Photographers.

Art of the Steal – Film and Discussion
Jan 23 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

This film looks at the controversy surrounding the art collection of Dr. Albert C. Barnes, a millionaire who amassed a remarkable selection of significant works during the early 20th century. Barnes sought to keep his priceless pieces together as part of his foundation even after his death, but the involvement of numerous parties led to the scattering of his collection. This documentary sheds light on how his wishes were violated by a handful of opportunistic individuals.

A group discussion to share opinions and thoughts will follow the film.

Presented in association with UCC Sanctuary, Coffee Shop Artists, Malden Creates, Howes Gallery, MACI, Pinnacle Mortgage Corp

Deeply Affecting | Faith and Film
Jan 25 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Reservations Recommended: Text UCCFILM to 41444 or

This month’s film tells the story of a father and daughter living in the forest off the grid – until society 
‘intervenes’ in their idyllic life. Their journey is profound and harrowing and beautiful – and we get to wonder about what makes a home.

“Occasionally uplifting and sometimes heartbreaking, it is nothing less than sublime.”

“It covers difficult ground, but to say it leaves no trace would be a lie. It definitely makes its mark.”

“…is one of the best films of 2018 and promises to make a star of [it’s actors].”

100% Tomatometer


Chad & Anna Kidd will lead the discussion. BYOB. Bring your own beer, wine or soda and experience the places where Pop culture meets our faith. We will watch a current film followed by a discussion about themes of morality, faith, and humanity led by local theologians and community leaders.

This Film Screening and Discussion are free – suggested $10.00 donation is welcomed.
